> Unseasonable heat again today. Mid-90's. High humidity, to boot.

Makes for great melons and okra!  Here in Texas on our farm we start at
7:00am till noon, take an hour off then work till 6:00pm or finish packing
for the next day delieveries.  Drink lots of water.  Stay away from air
conditioning.   Next chance you get go someplace really hot.  It gets dark
here 8:00-8:30 and its still hot.
If it gets below 65 we freeze.
